Help For HVAC Workers Who Have Encountered Asbestos

HVAC workers come into contact with numerous construction materials every day. Because HVAC workers must often work in houses, buildings and other structures that were built before the 1980s, they face a high risk of exposure to asbestos. Just a few substances that may contain asbestos include HVAC duct insulation, sealants, ceiling tiles, roofing and pipes. Exposure to asbestos through any of these substances, or through secondhand exposure, can lead to dangerous health problems such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Fortunately, The Gori Law Firm can assist HVAC workers throughout Illinois who were exposed to asbestos in air conditioning units and asbestos in air conditioning ducts.

For HVAC Workers, Asbestos Exposure Can Take Years To Discover

When someone inhales asbestos, tiny asbestos fibers adhere to the lining of the intestines, lungs or heart. Eventually, these fibers can make adjacent cells develop into cancer cells. However, this process can take years. Asbestos-related illnesses may take a long time to form, but they can kill very quickly. For example, the average prognosis for mesothelioma is merely two years. Even if it has been years since you believe you were exposed to asbestos, you may still be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
